We stayed at this lovely inn because we were visiting family for a graduation celebration. This place is breath taking! The peace and quiet is addicting, the hosts are wonderful people, so are the staff. The breakfast they served was to die for, each day different, fresh, and very healthy. We saw and heard so much wildlife, deer and birds. Just beautiful. Treat yourself to a little heaven on earth. Trust me, you will not forget it. Oh, amd there are so many great wineries near by for exploring.
Everything about this B&B is top notch. By far the most spectacular, though is the location: the view from every room in the inn over the bend in the new river is spectacular. We spent two nights in the Palissades room (which we learnt is named after the palissade cliffs towering over the river that you can see from the room). Amenities in the room are perfect, spacious bathroom, nice decoration, and we especially liked it that you can control the AC for your own room, so that you’re not dependent on a centrally controlled airconditioning. The room has access to a private section of the deck, which is nice to sit especially in the evening (the morning sun can be hot). It’s clear that the building was designed as a B&B. There are two public spaces, both very spacious, on the top level (where also our room was) breakfast is served. Breakfast is very beautifully prepared and presented and varies day by day. Some dietary restrictions are accommodated (vegetarian). Breakfast is served at 8.30, which for us is on the earlier side but it’s definitely worth the effort of getting ready in time. Coffee and tea (and softdrinks ) are available from 7.30 throughout the day. There are some nice restaurants nearby, follow the hosts’ recommendations. The inn should be a reasoning itself to come here, but there are several attractive (outdoors) activities in the area. We enjoyed the hike to the great falls and spent some time by the river. All in al we had a fabulous stay!…
If you are in or around the Blacksburg area, I highly recommend a stay at Inn at Riverbend. The location is absolutely stunning, and it's full of country charm. I didn't meet Jeanne but I met the other owner John and he was so friendly, just nice as can be. The rooms are large, the bathrooms luxurious, and every single room has access to a large wraparound balcony with a stunning view and rocking chairs to enjoy it. Time slows down when you stay here, in a great way. If you want a relaxing escape away from the noise and chaos of the city, look no further than the Inn at Riverbend.
We stayed at the Inn at Riverbend from June 7 through June 9. Overall, we were dis-appointed with our stay. While the Inn is beautiful as is the gorgeous scenery, the owner's of the Inn did not seem to cater to the customers. When we first got there, the first thing they were interested in was closing out the bill. Then there were signs about eating in your room, and everytime you came out of your room, they were checking to see what you were doing. You felt that tou were intruding. Breakfast was OK at best. I feel we were overcharged for the service we received.
We stayed at the Inn at Riverbend for our 49th wedding anniversary. Excellent Bed and Breakfast. Jeanne and John are great hosts. Jeanne helped my husband surprise me with a fresh flower bouquet that was beautiful. Delicious breakfast served each morning. Views from the deck area are spectacular! We stayed in the Palisades room. Very comfortable with excellent views from rocking chairs on deck outside our room. You could not find a nicer place to stay! We have stayed in numerous Bed and Breakfast and this one is superb! Thanks for helping make our anniversary special!
